Luis Enrique to replace Moreno and return as coach of Spain

Luis Enrique to replace Moreno and return as coach of Spain

Enrique's previous assistant boss Robert Moreno took the reins while the former Barcelona manager was away, but after Spain's 5-0 win over Romania on Monday night, Moreno is thought to have found out his fate and he left the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in tears.

The Spanish soccer federation did not respond to a request for comment on Moreno's future but announced that their president Luis Rubiales and sporting director Jose Francisco Molina will hold a news conference on Tuesday.

"The first one to know everything, that Luis Enrique wanted to return, was Robert". "I have been honest about that".

"At the end of October we spoke, and yesterday we spoke".

"I consider Luis Enrique a friend and I think friends are above any project". In August to pass on my condolences. And I talked to him again yesterday. "We support the coach and his staff", said Moreno. During his absence, Roberto Moreno oversaw the team, but said in September he would step aside should Luis Enrique decide to come back.

RFEF president Luis Rubiales, the man infamous for sacking Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the 2018 World Cup kick-off, fueled rumours of Moreno's sacking and failed to back him publicly.

Two months later, the former Barcelona manager shared the tragic news that his nine-year-old daughter Xana had died following a five-month battle with bone cancer.

Moreno is said to have been left feeling "used and betrayed", but Rubiales explained that he could have no qualms about the re-appointment of Enrique, stating that the recruitment process has been nothing but transparent.

"This should be a happy day as Luis Enrique is back after everything he has been through", said Rubiales. He is delighted to return, and thanked us for sticking to our word.

Spain had sealed their place at the finals a month ago and clinched top spot in Group F with a 7-0 win at home to Malta on Friday but they still made a flying start and took the lead when midfielder Fabian Ruiz volleyed home in the eighth minute.
